were again, critical, of the obama administration. >> i have never seen nor perfect candidate and i was not perfect. i will always speak out, but if you read the article today and my other utterances, it has always been stated that i am still on the obama train. i will explain why. >> we would definitely like you to do that. if you address the question of the red lione. tell us what you said last week. >> i was incensed, as i believe every american was, what occurred in both egypt and libya. in egypt, the embassy was overrun with cops. they did not ran away -- run away. the libyan cops ran away, didn't protect the embassy and worst of all, the ambassador was killed, so to speak. i don't know exactly how. along with three other consulate personnel. i did not believe the american response was adequate. the american embassy in egypt initially put out a statement that was denunciatory of the video that some muslims were saying was the reason for the attack. it was not sufficiently denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follo
want to know if there's any practical consequence, it would be the point that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. president romney might well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute. but it does not seem that kind of social conservative question has a lot of civilians in something like a presidential debate. other than health care, i can't see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. here is why. no major national political figure has attack affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it's remarkable. the republicans who during the nineties for a while were seeing some political profit in attacking affirmative action don't do it anymore. the democrats, john kerry in the early '90s and some others said maybe it's time to stop these racial preferences. the democratic leadership council was inching down the road. but that's all gone. i have spoken to a republican politician, why is that? the answer was we get so demonized if we ever raise our voices against affirmative action. it's not worth the cost or the has
something about libya, say, reporting about how maybe obama administration -- especially if you do not already like obama, maybe that will help inform your choice of whether to vote for him, but not, it seems lately, because it has given you the information or the tools to think about what ought to happen in libya or what our policy in libya ought to be. we have soared to come to present foreign policy coverage as character coverage. i think that those categories in a way get confused. you have separated them out. are we learning about the world when we read that article? or are we learning that romneycare is about the little guy or whether obama is brave? i think it is a tricky question, because you might, indeed, get information you feel you need to vote for this person or that person, but there is also the other legal issue about learning about what the article is ostensibly about, what are the actual problems in the world beyond the election, what they might be, and i do not think that the character thing is negligible. it is important if somebody cares about the little guy. th
. >> that's not fair. >> the obama administration, said that the single most important thing -- a republican leader said the single most important thing we want to achieve is for president obama to be a one-term president. almost indicating he will not give any compromise. if the president elected is not your party and you're elected to a senate seat to what extent will you adopt that approach? >> i'm a reformer. i was keeling -- dealing with the democrats who controlled both houses 12 out of my 15 years. i think it's important for us to make sure we do everything we can do to confront the problem and not postpone them leek my opponent has been doing for the last 14 years. we've got to confront them, we've got to solve the problems. i'm going to work bipartisanly with anybody who wants to work to solve the problems. i do not want us to continue on and debate and tear down, demagogue each other. i want us to solve america's problems an move this country forward. >> representative baldwin, 30 seconds. >> thank you. i will support the president and command for the chief no matter what party tha
on american families. that number, by the way, comes directly from the obama administration. >> senator, 30 seconds. >> let's stipulate we are not going to do cap and trade. but that is not the issue before us today. senator fisher says human beings are not warming the planet, and i say we are. i say it is a clear and compelling problem, and we need to address it, and we need to have a debate about how we are going to address it and what our strategy is going to be. otherwise this is a problem that is going to plague us and why we didn't do anything about it. >> fred has the next question for senator kerrey. >> there is a lot of discussion about lower tax rates by eliminating deductions and loopholes. but one persons loophole is an into in state and local taxes. would you offer specific changes to lower overall tax rates? >> the big four are mortgage deduction, and i think you can scale it back. likewise with charitable deduction, state and local. i think there is a great pay off through simplification. you have to believe in it. you have to believe that simplification will generate more re

under a continued obama administration? what is the government supposed to come or what might happen if they just cannot get legislation passed? >> i would not put it in a box under each administration. this is an issue that is a significant threat to our national security. it has to be taken security -- seriously regardless of you is in office. what i would like to see is somebody in the white house that is responsible for coordinating this across the entire government. as a direct report to the president of the united states, somebody who has the authority of the president to make decisions and coordinate this across sectors. there's no single agency that has the ability to respond to this or to work this. people talk about nsa all the time, and general alexander is somebody who cares about this country, but that is one piece of the solution. somebody needs to coordinate this across the entire hole of government, and that going to be the best -- the entire whole of government, and that is going to be the best thing. >> there is no single agency that has authority, can approach the
